BRONX — A pair of robbers shoved a gun into a man's neck while stealing his gold chains, cash and other items in a mugging caught on video outside a Concourse Village building, police said. 

During the incident, which occurred near East 169th Street and Sheridan Avenue on Monday around 2:21 a.m., the thieves came up from behind the 32-year-old victim and pulled out the handgun, holding it to his neck before he handed over the chains, according to police and the video.

The robbers also made off with the man's watch, cellphone, debit card, jacket and about $80 in cash before fleeing east on 169th Street into a dark-colored SUV waiting nearby, police said.  

The suspect holding the gun was described as standing 5-foot-9 and wearing a gray sweatsuit and black sneakers, the NYPD said. The second suspect, who was wearing a mask over his face, was described as standing 5-foot-9 and wearing a black sweatsuit and black gloves.
